Kennebec Savings Bank has used many services provided by CMA. Executive recruitment, career counseling for employees, AAP support and Human Resources consultation. I am pleased with the quality of their work and I don’t hesitate to recommend their services to other HR professionals. CMA is Maine’s “home Town” team when it comes to providing professional HR services.

CMA is my go to HR advisor when we need extra hands, eyes or minds to work on an employment related situation or project. I work with CMA in a highly collaborative partnership – we look at our organization’s vision and strategic plan, create a plan that is aligned and customized. I trust the team and am very satisfied with the work and results!

CMA is a fabulous trainer: knowledgeable, energetic, and practical! They delivered communication skills training to 30 of our hotel department managers, and the feedback we received was terrific. We certainly will request them back again.
